The mission of the Boston REACH Coalition is to promote health equity and eliminate racial and health inequities in Boston. REACH: Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health. The 200-member coalition has met monthly for ten years. The coalition has earned an outstanding reputation in the local and public health community for its work in raising awareness of racial and ethnic health disparities, educating the public about health issues that affect the Black community in Boston, and for its credible partnerships with community members, policymakers, faith-based leaders, and academic institutions. The coalition includes community members, community groups, health care providers, business and faith leaders, and academic partners. With new funding as a Center of Excellence in the Elimination of Disparities (CEED), the coalition will expand its scope of work to address cardiovascular disease and public health issues related to men’s health, adolescent wellness, community advocacy, public policy, and environmental health. A strategic plan will ensure that community efforts to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities can be sustained.

Child Care: Monday & Wednesday: 6:30-9:00pm for students in classes those evenings


The St. Mark's Community Education Program improves the quality of individual lives and the community through English, literacy, and citizenship programs. Lack of literacy, low English language skills, and limited access to U.S. citizenship impede many residents’ access to jobs, education and other ways to improve their quality of life. We have a vision of residents of the St. Mark Area participating fully in U.S. society, creating a viable and stable community. We believe that we should have mutual respect and compassion for one another. Members of our community will grow in self-esteem and confidence as they gain new language skills, cultural knowledge, and U.S. citizenship. Through our English classes and US citizenship programs residents can advocate for themselves and their families, better access employment, goods, and services, participate in the US political process, and negotiate their interactions with immigration, health care institutions, schools, and other US institutions.
